FARMINGTON – There could be a serious spike in membership in the Chris Danas Fan Club following his virtuoso performance Saturday.

The Middletown High senior quarterback’s biggest admirers, of course, are his receivers.

Danas threw for 515 yards, believed to be a school record, and five touchdowns on 28 of 38 passing as the Blue Dragons defeated Farmington 37-21 in a CCC Division II East game for their second straight win.

Chris Danas is met by coach Sal Morello on the sideline after connecting with Anthony Pappa for an 87-yard score in the third quarter.

“I’ve never had a quarterback do that,” veteran Middletown coach Sal Morello said.

Danas was sharp all day regardless of the situation. He completed 19 of 25 throws in the first half for 244 yards and two scores as the Dragons built a 17-0 lead halftime lead.

Middletown pulled away when Danas threw for touchdowns on the Dragons’ first two possessions of the third quarter — an 87-yard strike to Anthony Pappa over the middle and a deep ball to Alexander Rios down the right sideline that went for 52 yards.

Alexander Rios (11) pulls down Farmington receiver Michael Gregory in the second quarter.

“I’m so happy Chris is my quarterback. He made great throws all day long,” said Pappa, who had three receptions for 105 yards. “He was throwing great all day and has been all season. That ball was perfect, right in my hands. He’s been having a great year.”
